ARISE members are constantly working to build disaster resilience at the local, regional, and global levels. This is always best done in partnership with those who may be at risk of a disaster. Those at the local level typically know their risk and resilience from decades, if not centuries, of local exposure to hazards.
ARISE provides a unique opportunity to bring perspectives from its members to combine with local knowledge to create powerful solutions for disaster risk reduction. Further, information can travel "upward" from the local level through the ARISE network to disseminate best practices. These case studies, organized by the seven ARISE Themes, offer solid examples of how partnerships can enhance disaster risk resilience.
